The Illegal Alien Debate

Here is a 5-part debate on the illegal immigration crisis courtesy of the Los Angeles Times - hardly a paragon of objectivity when it comes to illegals - but, nonetheless, it's a good place to start. It features Mark Krikorian, Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies, and Tamar Jacoby, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute.

The Late, Great Immigration Debate - LA Times

Now, needless to say, I consider Jacoby's comments to be, for the most part, a load of self-serving horseshit. But it's a good debate, and a good place to begin if you're wondering what all the damn fuss is about.

As usual, the surrenderist illegal alien apologist Jacoby leaves out a lot of important information...

1) Contrary to many pro-illegal groups assertions, a good percentage of the illegals pouring over the border are not fruit pickers and humble busboys, but are, in fact, hardened criminals who murder and rape U.S. citizens every single day. The "Stop Chasing That Busboy" tagline is just another attempt to lie about this.

2) Jacoby repeats the pro-illegal mantra "I don't want to reward people who have broken the law. I don't want to encourage others to imitate them." Pure bullshit. That is EXACTLY what you are proposing and if you had any integrity at all you'd just come out and say it. Again, as usual, the A-word is avoided at all costs, showing these folks for the lying bastards that they are.

3) Jacoby hilariously makes the following statement... "the one thing we cannot do is go on pretending they don't live here—or that it's all right for them to spend the rest of their lives as they are, a permanent worker class living forever on the margins of our society." Just what does this stupid bitch think that President Bush and the business interests have in mind when they propose an erasure of the American borders? A return to indentured servitude, if not out and out slavery. For the life of me, I have no idea why leftists have thrown their hat in with interests in this country who want to essentially bring back slavery!

4) The usual complete bullshit "earned path to citizenship" - whereby illegals pay a piddling fine, pay taxes on probably unverifiable income, and promise to (someday learn a few words of) English. There's a reason why so many erase-the-border surrenderists are so in favor of a "earned path to citizenship" - because they know it is totally unworkable, totally unenforceable, and will ultimately give every single illegal, even criminals, an almost bump-free ride to full citizenship... in other words, AN AMNESTY!
